The update plugins action is supposed to be scheduled to run every 12 hours (43200 sec in the CRON events array). The next timestamp after which it will fire leads off the array in which the related action occurs. If that all appears correct, CRON is malfunctioning. Trace through wp-cron.php and figure out why it’s firing too often. If anything else update related is scheduled, search through code and find out what’s scheduling the event too often. The clue to search for is the action tag name in the ‘cron’ array. I suggest first doing a manual update from a fresh download, except you’d be using the same version to refresh all files. It could solve the issue and it’s much easier than debugging. Reply To: Each process or edit takes forever to load in wordpress site ?
